bankrupting america. guest: i think that the viewer's concerns reflect the concern that is widespread in the united states about national sovereignty, about control, and i do think that those concerns clash with the need to confront the problem. if in fact we do not address this problem in international and comprehensive way, how in the world do we address it? it may well be that the listeners was not believe in global warming, in which case -- it may well be that the listener does not believe in global warming, in which case he has nothing to worry about. if you believe that the emissions from china, india, and the united states contribute to global warming, it appears there is no other way to approach that issue then some kind of international agreement and some kind of enforcement. host:ueueueueueueueueueueueueueh warming, it appears there is no other way to approach that issue then some kind of international agreement and some kind of enforcement. host: dallas, roger, good morning. caller: good morning. man-made climate change, which which we have called global warming, has not be

states of america. their legacy will be an america that is safer and stronger. an america that reflects the extraordinary character of the men and women who serve it. thank you. >> good morning. this is congressman mark kirk of illinois. when i returned home from active duty in afghanistan, i dedicated my congressional service to helping families with healthcare. we can lower healthcare costs and provide conference for americans who lack insurance by enabouting key reforms that already help thousands of families in many states. first, we can start lowering costs by reigning in lawsuits in america. we are the most litigious country on earth. lawsuit reforms can save billions in healthcare costs alone. in new jersey, without lawsuit reform, it costs $5,500 per patient to provide insurance. in california, with some of the strongest lawsuit reforms, insurance costs half as much as it does in new jersey. congress should enhance the effective reforms of many states by enacting lawsuit reforms for our entire country. second, congress should grant the right of each american to buy coverage from

hard work, dedication, and his success in putting together a very strong, top draft. overhaul america's financial system would be a difficult job in the best of times. chris dodd did a great job putting together legislation that will reform wall street can't protect main street. if we do not reform the system, sure as shooting, another crisis will happen again and happen again separated may happen in a different way. but it will happen. reform is an imperative for every american. every american was affected by what happened on wall street. chairman dodd's blueprint is complete and comprehensive but there are two specific reforms that i would like to explain today. first, this proposal will guarantee a stable source of funding for the sec once and forever by allowing the agency to retain the fees it collects. this is a simple change that will have a huge impact on the sec. right now, they do not have the money it needs to hire enough analysts, update its technological resources, the sec is just overwhelmed and overmatched by the people it regulates. it is no wonder that bernie madoff g
quote from "the wall street journal." other issuers, such as bank of america, j.p. morgan, chase card services, and discover, recently converted customers' fixed rates to variable ones. "new york times." now congress is moving to limit the penalties of riskier borrowers which is what the underlying legislation did, mr. chairman, let me continue on, who have become a prime source of billions of dollars in fee revenue for the industry and to make up for the lost income, the card companies are going after those people with sterling credit. so now we also find out, again from "usa today," starting next year, bank of america will charge a number of customers an annual fee ranging from $29 to $99. we see that in this same article from "usa today," citigroup has started charging annual fees to cardholders. again, mr. chairman, we have the testimony. many of us predicted this. as i said, way back in march, make no mistake about it if this bill passes, it's going to be a lot harder for people to access the credit they need to pay their bills, cover medical emergencies or finance large purchase
that there are thousands of veterans on the streets in america. i was particularly moved by a comment by the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, admiral mullen, when he met with a group of 20, 30 homeless veterans. they were betterment of iraq and afghanistan. this is not a phenomenon of people who have lost their way years ago. this is a growing problem. we have to commit ourselves to the all-out effort to help these young men and women. this is a phenomenon that stretches through every conflict we have had, and they are on the streets of america today. i am impressed by the commitment from the president, certainly from secretary shinseki, who understands this not only from a policy perspective, but from a personal perspective. we were glad to introduce the zero tolerance homelessness act. it contains housing provisions that would be important for the and the donte -- v.a. to be able to provide housing assistance, stabilization services, as well as additional housing doctors' group hud to get that trend into homes. we also understand that housing alone is not the solution. it has to be linked to

, opening up new opportunities for u.s. workers here in the united states of america which is exactly what is being said to president obama as he meets in korea at this moment with their leadership. with president lee and others. so i think that we need to have our attention in this congress focused on the priorities -- the priorities the american people have. fire fighting is very, very important. but again this measure will pass if not unanimously narrowly unanimously and it will do so and i hope get the resources to ensure that we never have the loss of life like those of captain hall and others. but i know from having spoken to their families, mr. speaker, that they believe that the absolutely essential for us to encourage private sector job creation and economic growth and that's why i'm talking about this priority that needs to be addressed here. now, mr. speaker, i'm going to urge my colleagues to defeat the previous question as we move ahead. why? because the issue of reading legislation is another very, very important one that is before us. there is a bipartisan proposal launched

any other group in america. i am in support of this public option. i tried to think of any other time in our history that we were so divided over an issue. we have so many congressman taking money from the insurance industry. in the civil war, southern states congressmen work make of -- made up of plantation owners and made money off the cotton industry. they did not want government coming between them and their cotton pickers. these men convinced poor white southerners to own slaves so they could keep getting richer. guest: we have seen a rapid decline. 15 years ago, there were 50% more people covered with health care insurance when it was provided by small businesses. every year, more and more employees and small-business owners are getting cut. they are getting cut because it is more and more expensive. it is just as exorbitant. it is never that high when it comes. every eight years, it doubles. á÷we have to put -- i am happy that there are more and more institutions that are shedding light. i can showing where members of congress receive their campaign contributions is a great w

, can you think of a better way for america to say no to continuing the war in afghanistan than to charge them in attacks? michael is calling us from texas. michael, i understand you think the congressman is on the right track? >> caller: yes. i definitely think he's on the right track. in fact, this is the same idea that i had years ago had we got into the situation where we're in two different wars yet we have tax cuts in america which had never been done in the past during war. i think this is a great idea. it forces every american to understand there's a financial cost to fighting our two wars. currently we're putting the cost on our children and the common american off the street they don't feel like there's really a burden on them unless they have a family member. >> michael, thank you for your phone call. apologize for that poor connection. the gist of what michael was say, in case you couldn't make it out that well, he does support the tax to fund the war as opposed to putting a burden on future generations. michael, thanks for your phone call. jump in on my facebook pag
the house proved differently. the affordable healthcare for america act is a piece of legislation that will provide stability and security for americans who have insurance, quality affordable options for those who don't, and bring down the cost of healthcare for families, businesses, and our government while strengthening the financial health of medicare. it is legislation that is fully paid for, and it will reduce our long-term federal deficit. given the heated and often misleading rhetoric surrounding this legislation, i know this was a courageous vote for many members of congress. and i'm grateful to them and for the rest of their colleagues for taking us this far. but more importantly, so are the millions of americans whose lives will change when we achieve insurance reform. families with pre-existing conditions who will timely have insurance coverage. parents who will be protected from annual and lifetime limits that can force them to pay exorbitant out of pocket costs for a child's illnesses. small businesses that will finally be able to cover their employees, and working fo

dioxide pollution found in urban areas. according to n.g.v. america, one out of every 10 transit buses and 130,000 school buses, taxicabs, and other vehicles on u.s. roads are already fueled with cleaner burning natural gas. in 2008 the use of natural gas vehicles displaced almost 300 million gallons of petroleum use in the united states. using natural gas instead of coal or oil is a low-cost, low-emission solution to reducing our nation's dependence on foreign energy sources while also reducing our greenhouse gas emission. with that i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields. the chair recognizes the gentleman from virginia, mr. wolf, for five minutes. mr. wolf: thank you, madam speaker. to meet the president's deadline for closing guantanamo, there has been a rush during the past two months to transfer as many detainees as possible to their own countries or to a third country that would accept them. on september 26, the administration announced that a detainee named aly amanned was transferred to yemen. the announcement did not reveal the terms of its transfer but sa
of america's great forest, those reserves setaside beginning in 1905 by theodore roosevelt, who by the way when he did that, said the great purpose of the forest reserves is first, water for agriculture, and second, home building. most people don't attribute that to theodore roosevelt. that's what it was for. obviously there are things we need to do in our forests for other purposes, but clearly protecting watersheds is an essential stewardship obligation that this congress for too long has not done enough to deal with. and part of it, sure, we can add more money here and there, and that can be good. we can debate how much. but the real issue is the underlying law that needs to be fixed. so there are forest managers, our trained professionals can go out and do what they were trained to do. can you imagine let's say if you were a veterinarian, i don't know if there's any on the floor, if were you a veterinarian and you had to go through the process a forester has to go through to treat an animal, you might as well shoot it in the head because it's never going to survive long enough to get t
